Joy Finke, 75, of Hori­con, met her Lord and Sav­ior on Sep­tem­ber 17, 2022.
Joy was born in Colum­bus, to Her­bert and Leone (Schin­del) Tesch on June 30, 1947.
She was a 1965 grad­u­ate of Hori­con High School.
Joy mar­ried Roland Finke on June 12, 1965, in Hori­con, at St. Stephen Lutheran Church.
Joy was a sec­re­tary at St. Stephen Lutheran Church for many years. Joy had a strong faith and was a faith­ful ser­vant of God. She shared this with all who knew her as her faith and fam­ily was some­thing she cher­ished and was proud of.
Joy was an avid col­lec­tor of an­gels. Any­one who knew Joy would say she truly was an angel on earth. The fam­ily in­vites you to take an angel of your choice as a spe­cial re­minder of Joy upon leav­ing the ser­vice.
Joy is sur­vived by her lov­ing hus­band, Roland; sons, Richard (Amy) Finke and Bruce (Cindy) Finke; and grand­chil­dren, Alexan­der, Brett, and Madi­son Finke. She is fur­ther sur­vived by her in-laws, Bill Grams, Elaine Tesch, Mar­i­lyn Finke, Betty Miller, Leon (Marge) Finke, Emily (Roy) Rass­mann, Don (Donna) Finke, Judi (Ron) Bas­t­ian, Bonita (Wally) Za­s­trow, and Loris (Jerry) Schae­fer, as well as many nieces, nephews, other rel­a­tives, and many friends.
A fu­neral ser­vice for Joy took place on Wednes­day, Sept. 21, at 11 a.m. at St. Stephen’s Lutheran Church in Hori­con, with Rev. Daniel See­hafer of­fi­ci­at­ing. Vis­i­ta­tion was from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. at church. In­urn­ment will take place at Oak Hill Ceme­tery in Hori­con at a later date.
The fam­ily would like to ex­tend a sin­cere thank you to the staff at Marsh­field Med­ical Cen­ter- Beaver Dam for the care they pro­vided to Joy. A heart-felt thank you goes out to Rol­lie and Joy’s spe­cial neigh­bors and friends, Michael and Bon­nie, Mike and Sandy, and Ilene. Your sup­port and love dur­ing this dif­fi­cult time has meant so much and will never be for­got­ten.
Memo­ri­als in honor of Joy may be di­rected to St. Stephen Lutheran Church in Hori­con.
